Do They Know It's Christmas - Band Aid (The Beatmeister Remix)

Here's a very special holiday treat for everyone... A remix by yours truly of this classic 1984 track written by Bob Geldof (of the famed Boomtown Rats) and Midge Ure (lead singer of Ultravox) specifically to raise money for the 1984 famine in Ethiopia. Incidentally, this tune has been a Christmas anthem to 80s New Wavers back in the day, as it has been a gathering of the best British artists and bands with Boy George, Bono, Simon Lebon, Spandau Ballet, Sting, Paul Weller, Bananarama, to name a few and collectively known as "Band Aid."

So in this season of giving and sharing, this is my way of expressing a big thanks to all the visitors of "Totally Mixed Up," and to all my friends in the blogging world. I just hope to still continue blogging until the next year and do what I love to do most, mixing great music.

You can also catch this exclusive remix being played at The Vault on Live 365 as my buddy, The Boy Wonder, has also included it in the station's unique playlist; the only place on net radio where you can definitely find the best in obscure and hard-to-find music, whether old or new.

In behalf of my co-DJs here at the blog and of course, The Vault, would like to great everyone a very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful and Prosperous New Year ahead!! :D

Still no link? this vault thing is killing your fanbase.... just my .02 cents

hey jun B,

thanks for the feedback! just to clear it up, am already part of The Vault station DJ roster, so every mix that I would post esp. those that are being played on the station would definitely include The Vault.

am trying not to expose the download link for the meantime due to personal reasons (DMCA thing particularly) as some of my previous posts have been scrapped by blogger.

so instead of going private like some other blogs do with the same problem, I've decided to just send 'em to those interested and if you're new to the site, you could just hit me up so that I could add you on my email blast. who knows, I might be bringing back the link in the future. let's see...

hope this helps. anyways, appreciate the inputs.

cheers! :D

some additional comments re: The Vault. On a positive note, I don't think it would hinder the visitors, as instead, it would even invite the listeners of the station to drop by and check out the blog. :D
